Koala Man has just been shortlisted for the AACTA Award for Best Online Video or Series.

The pilot which aired on ABC Comedy in November 2018 is a collaboration between Princess Pictures and the genius Michael Cusack, with support from Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation, and with animation done by the team here at Monkeystack.

AACTA stands for Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts. The awards recognise excellence in the film and television industry, including the producers, directors, actors, writers, and cinematographers.

We’re pretty excited at the company that Koala Man is keeping in the award nominations, so we thought that it would be a great time to put together a little behind the scenes case study to show you just what’s involved in the production of an animated series like this.

Grab a cold one, kick the double bungers to the floor and enjoy. Oh, and if the whippersnappers are around, there’s a bad language warning so send ‘em out on their pushies, or chuck on some headphones before you press play.
